"The main source of onboard entertainment is Ed White, a bespectacled 'interpreter' employed by the National Forest Service. 'Interpreter' is what teh Forest Service calls a ranger who is also a tour guide, and I love what the title implies: that a place is like a language."

-- From Donovan Hohn's Moby-Duck: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea and of the Beachcombers, Oceanographers, Environmentalists, and Fools, Including the Author, Who Went in Search of Them.  (which I highly recommend.)
